race and discrimination. the most famous in brown v. board which the court held it was unconstitutional. so why wait until 1967 to hear the case about interracial marriage. here are all of the states that had laws on the books. banning interracial marriage. by 1967 only 16 states still had the laws on the books. in the decades between 1947 and 1967 the years the supreme court was staying mom on the issue, most states decided on their own. the court was following on their heels, following the heels of public opinion. this is a big debate in the legal world. the supreme court influenced by american public opinion? these are nine people who could completely ignore the will of the people. they are appointed for life. they can totally ignore us if they choose. many legal experts say that's not how it works. they are swayed by what the people think about issues. they anoubsed they would hear two cases involving same-sex marriage. that's huge. they would hear the prop 8 case out of california. that's the california ballot proposition which amended the california constitution to define marriage
early saturday morning. practice squad linebacker larry brown was killed. the two had been friends since their college days. brent released a statement, saying i am grief stricken for his family, our teammates and friends. i will live with this horrific, tragic loss every day for the rest of my life. >>> dc police are on the hunt for two men who hailed a cab and knocked out the driver. cab drivers we spoke to didn't seem surprised. what's being done to protect them? >> reporter: a cab driver knocked unconscious and robbed of his cell phone and cash. it happened just before midnight friday. police say the suspects were passengers, riding in the back seat. at some point, the men put on masks. when the cab was stopped along the 900 block of euclid street northwest, they attacked the driver from behind, robbed him, then took off on foot. other drivers we spoke with were disturbed, but not surprised. >> you don't really have much protection when you do this business. >> reporter: just last month, two teenagers were charged with shooting and killing a taxi driver along brentwood parkway northe
. >> even among 6-year-olds, she's not afraid to shock. today, the brown paper bag test. she stops each child entering the classroom and compares their skin tone to a paper bag. >> let me see your arm. can you put your arm out for me? okay. you got to sit in the back. >> lighter than the bag, you can sit in the front. it's a real test from the early 1900s. used by social organizations like churches and fraternities and neighborhood groups to decide who was light skinned enough to join. >> was it too extreme to do to little kids? >> the more shocking the activity is the better because it's going to stick with them. >> why are you all feeling bad? >> she showed us that dark skin had to sit in the back and light skin had to sit in the front. i didn't think it was fair. >> it's an eye-opening report. "who is black in america" airs on cnn this sunday, 8:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> kyung lah is back with another "360 bulletin." >>> new violent protests in egypt aimed at president morsi. they broke through barricades protecting the presidential palace while demonstrators outside cairo thr
be the brown v. board of education for gay and lesbian couples. or the case before it that embraced segregation. it's very hard to predict. it leaves many of us very, very nervous. it's not just the 120,000 couples in this country who are gay or lesbian and married but it affects all of us. we currently have a country that disenfranchises people who want to marry for love and we don't let them. 31 states prohibit those type of marriages. >> a lot of people come back to the 1960s in loving versus west virginia and whether it will mirror that merely 50 years later. the court, though, has ten marriage equality cases to choose from. as i pointed out, they only chose two. if i know this correctly, they had eight different ones to consider choosing and two prop 8 ones. they have one doma and one prop 8. >> what's fascinating, this is a court that has avoided this issue. it's been pathological. everyone in lawrence v. texas, the opinion was distorted in my ways because of a clear effort not to say anything that would have baring on the same-sex marriage issue. suddenly, they take two issues with the b
to mind, brown versus the board of education, that sat on people's desks for a long time and a bunch of different cases that all sort of folded in to it. loving versus virginia. that was interracial marriage. that was another case that sat around a long time because it seemed as though the supreme court, differently configured supreme court, actually wanted to wait and let the country lead. and when you look right now, even some people who have been fighting for same-sex marriage for years say the math and the map don't make the supreme court taking this up right now a certainty. >> your law professors are so thrilled with you right now, joe johns, that you could just spout that off and i'm impressed. joe johns, thank you very much for that. see you probably friday. for the record, folks, nine states plus d.c. have legalized same-sex marriage to date. exit polls of last month's elections show that a slight majority of voters think that gay marriage should be legal in their states. >>> moving on now. rain, wind and snow are hammering the west coast. three separate storms in just one w
't going to go through this again. it's not going to be, you know, charlie brown with a football all over again. and so, you know i understand that there are lots of my former colleagues reporting on the white house who are convinced that the president won't get this through. this is a one-time negotiation. and the white house knows it's going to be too painful. and frankly, too disruptive to the markets. one thing the republicans keep talking about is certainly. and yet, they want the uncertainty of a default debate. it's not going to happen. >> richard and alex, if i can just add to, that we went through this in 2011 with regard to the debt ceiling. the financial markets reacted very badly. most voters and the financial markets blame the republicans. the republicans were the ones who were threatening the full faith and credit of the united states. they don't want to do this again. and if they do try to do it again, if i were the president, i would say forget about it. just raise the debt ceiling automatically. it's not in the constitution. there are no legislative requirements with rega
versus virginia. employment discrimination, 13 years after brown versus board of education. the supreme court had a marriage case on its bokt in 1956. but kicked it. because it didn't want to touch it with a ten-foot pole so waited for more states to come around. it's also the year that guess who's coming to dinner comes out. there's a cultural legal convergence. we're at that moment for the gay community now. one of the historians in the gay marriage trial, nancy kauts, a historian of marriage, she said one of the emancipated slaves after -- the slaves flocked to get married. she testified that one of the emancipated slaves said the marriage covenant is a foundation of all of our rights. so i totally agree with rea that this is just the beginning but it is an important cornerstone to building full equality for lgbt citizens. >> this question of sort of how enslaved people thought about marriage, the extent to which they engaged in formal marriages and then the extent to which ones given the freedom it became one of the first things that free people did to represent their freedom is ins
for interracial marriage. like brown versus board of education. it's time to say you have the right to be in a committed relationship with the person you love and the government shouldn't tell you who that is. it's a simple, clear-cut case and i certainly hope the supreme court agrees. >> democratic congressman, jared polis of colorado, do appreciate your time. >> coming up. >> someone get corey booker a super hero cape. the latest adventure of the newark mayor. he's at it again. >>> and then we flash back to 1992, when separation beset the house of windsor, stay tuned, you're watching msnbc. eat good fats. avoid bad. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like natural grains. you can't argue with nutrition you can see. great grains. search great grains and see for yourself. for multi grain flakes that are an excellent source of
